NFRC announces call for films to students across U.S. and Canada

Posted By Tom Herron, National Fenestration Rating Council, Tuesday, April 1, 2014
The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) issued a call for submissions today for the NFRC 25th Anniversary Student Film Contest. The contest is part of a yearlong celebration of NFRC’s quarter-century of service to architects, builders and consumers.


College students in the U.S. and Canada are invited to answer the question, “Why do windows matter?” in a video production lasting no more than five minutes. NFRC will award the top three filmmakers with cash scholarships.


“There’s any number of ways participants can run with this,” said NFRC CEO Jim Benney. “In a way, we’re looking to these students for inspiration through their creativity and imagination. And it’s a great way for NFRC to celebrate its 25th anniversary.”


Entries are due by August 1, 2014, at 11:59 p.m. A panel of NFRC members will view and judge the submissions. The top three entries will be screened at NFRC’s Fall Membership Meeting on Sept. 22 in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and posted to NFRC’s website,


“This is an exciting new undertaking for us and will be a great way to engage students in the work we do,” said Jessica Finn, NFRC membership coordinator. “We hope participating students will see their films as an important element in promoting energy efficiency and environmental responsibility.”


Interested students should visit for contest information, rules, and registration.

Contact NFRC's Membership Coordinator, Jessica Finn, at 240-821-9512 with any questions.
